Hailing out of Nashville, Tennessee, Five Knives is one band to keep an eye out for as they make their way down to the Lone Star State for Warped Tour in San Antonio on August 3. The four-piece outfit just released their debut EP The Rising.
"Our sound's kind of schizophrenic," said singer Anna Worstell in press materials. "It's a mix of electronic and dance and rock and pop and hip-hop and punk."
Five Knives seems like the cross between the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Die Antwoord's high- pitched vocals with the Bloody Beetroot's mind-convulsing synths. Deeply invested in their punk rock roots, the band. Even though their heavy electronic sound would be most likely heard at Ultra Music Festival or Electric Daisy Carnival, their agressive and angst-ridden attitude is absolutely fitting for a Warped Tour environment.
Check out their post- apocalyptic derby rollercoaster in their song "All Fall Down," and their dubstep-tinged single "Messin' With My Mind."
